I have never stayed at a Best Western before, so I had no idea what to expect. My family and I were very happy with our stay and would definitely chose a BW property again. The hotel is located very close to Colonial Williamsburg and not far from Busch Gardens. The front desk staff was very friendly, helpful and accommodating....

HOTEL’S FAVOURITE REVIEW
Reviewed 17 September 2016 via mobile

This was a positive experience from the moment we arrived. They had our room ready early. The daytime receptionist had already actioned our room requests and noted our BW membership. She answered all our questions and had answers to questions we were about to ask. Maps, directions and leaflets to everywhere we needed. The room was well furnished including unusually...

We come into Williamsburg often enough and have never stayed anywhere other than the Doubletree. However, this time we couldn't find the deal we usually get so we decided to look around. Reviews for this hotel were ok and since we are hardly in our room anyways, we opted in to save some money and stay here. Location-wise, we liked...

This property has been given a BW PLUS status, yet there is no way this is a PLUS for BW. It is old and dirty with no way of updating it by renovation to make it a modern PLUS property. Please be aware that this is a review of the property, not of the personnel. The personnel were diligent, very...

This hotel was horribly dirty. The breakfast was chaotic, dirty, and they continually ran out of food. We cancelled a night and I still have not been refunded my money. The pool was closed much of the time as well.

Wonderful place, great amenities and best of all awesome/caring staff. The indoor pool and spa was a perfect way to unwind after a long day at Busch Garden. The staff went the extra mile and recommended a fantastic Thai restaurant (Emerald Thai) for dinner.

For the price (base rate at/under $100/night), you really won't find a better option in Williamsburg. Hotel is older, but when BW acquired it, they did some heavy remodeling and updating. The staff was super friendly, beds were very comfy, and the breakfast was more than adequate. It's in a great, centralized location--maybe 15 minutes from Busch Gardens, 10 minutes...
